GO TO Fagin’s Twist Presented by The Place & Avant Garde Dance Company…

fagins_twistFagin’s Twist is a high-energy reimagining of Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist by innovative hip hop / contemporary dance company Avant Garde Dance Company, led by Artistic Director Tony Adigun. Taking the classic piece of literature as its starting point, Fagin’s Twist presents an evocative story of Fagin’s youth, corrupted by greed and worn down by poverty.

The show features five of the familiar Oliver Twist characters: Oliver; Fagin; Bill Sikes; Nancy and the Artful Dodger but reimagines the paths of their lives and their individual circumstances. Some offer us rare glimpses of human pathos, whilst others are seen in a darker, more mysterious light.

With elements of breakdancing, hip-hop and contemporary dance, Fagin’s Twist is packed full of adrenaline and surprise.
